The 80/20 principlee applies in full force to software. The last bits of polishing takes most of the time. That's why there's lot of almost working bugtrackers on freshmeat, and only few out there really work. Not to mention that the last thing called "writing docs" is never done.

I'm striken by this too -- the backend for LLVM compiler infrastructure that I'm writing is almost done. Except for last bits like support for floating point and 64-bit integers, which appears extremely messy. I've spend almost all yesterday dealing with passing those beast as parameters to functions. Oh, well.
